Air Force Airman Gerald H. Arrington III has graduated from basic military training at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio.

The airman is the son of Gerald and Sylvia Arrington of Horseshoe Bend and is a 2002 graduate of Salem High School.

During the six weeks of training, the airman studied the Air Force mission, organization, and military customs and courtesies; performed drill and ceremony marches, and received physical training, rifle marksmanship, field training exercises, and special training in human relations.

In addition, airmen who complete basic training earn credits toward an associate degree through the Community College of the Air Force.
